Business hours on the first two days of the show have been extended until 8pm, while on the third day it is until 6pm.

The Show’s duration has been reduced from four days over the weekend, to three weekdays, as announced earlier.

As a concession to visitors impacted by the recent demonetization scenario, Phase 1 of Visitor Registration has been extended up to 31st January 2017 (Phase II of Visitor registration has been withdrawn). The charges for registration fees as per Phase III will be applicable from 1st February 2017.
